The Farmer Killed His Ox Today

This is my best approximation of the tune Slainte Mhath plays in the track "Ox" on their album VA. It’s a Cape Breton version of the reel Morning Star. The only other place I’ve heard it is in a YouTube video (by Innes Watson and Mike Vass) so I’m no expert, but it’s one of my favorite tunes and I had to try my hand at it. Apologies if I’m wrong about the key. I’m a beginner when it comes to sheet music.
